Olympics 2012 Opening Ceremony: TV Schedule, Watch Online, Live Updates And More

The Opening Ceremonies of the 2012 Olympic Games are finally here. More than a billion people across around the world are expected to watch the spectacle, titled "The Isles Of Wonder".

Danny Boyle will direct the Opening Ceremonies, whose credits include "Trainspotting" and "Slumdog Millionaire". The ceremonies will attempt to display Great Britain's culture on the world stage along with the traditional parade of nations and the lighting of the Olympic cauldron, which stands as the official start to the London games.

The ceremony will begin at 9 p.m. local time, which comes out to around 4 p.m. ET. If you want to watch the Opening Ceremonies live, well you are out of luck. There will be no stream available online for American viewers, and NBC will wait to air the ceremonies in its entirety until 7:30 p.m. ET.
